Line Item Vetoes

The voters of Minnesota amended the Minnesota Constitution in 1876 to give the governor the authority to veto one or more items of appropriation within a bill.  A complete list of full vetoes and line item vetoes is available on the Library's Bills Vetoed in Minnesota; this is a list of the line item vetoes.  Minnesota House Research provides further details on line item vetoes in the report, History of the Item Veto in Minnesota.

90th Legislature, 2017 1st Special Session SS Chap 4 SF1 5/30/2017 Omnibus state government appropriations bill.
Note - On July 19, 2017 Ramsey County Judge John Guthmann struck down Governor Mark Dayton's veto of the state House and Senate budgets. Governor Dayton appealed that decision. A Minnesota Supreme Court order on September 8, 2017 required the Governor and the Legislature to select a mediator to assist in resolving the issues regarding the governor's line item vetoes. On September 12, 2017, retired Hennepin County Judge Rick Solum was selected as mediator. After two days of discussions, the mediator declared that the parties had reached an impasse and ended the mediation on September 22, 2017. In a 5-1 decision issued November 16, 2017, the Minnesota Supreme Court upheld Governor Dayton's line-item veto of the Legislature's operating budget, overturning the lower court decision that deemed Dayton's action unconstitutional.
